Keyamo criticizes Obaseki, says APC stakeholders happy Edo Gov defected

Festus Keyamo, spokesman for the All Progressives Congress APC Presidential Campaign Council PCC, has once more hailed Mr. Godwin Obaseki’s departure from the party in June 2020.

The governor’s joining the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, he claimed; has now plunged the opposition party into a tsunami of existential crisis; despite the fact that the APC has stayed quiet since then.

This claim was made by Keyamo in a statement that was released in Abuja on Tuesday night, October 25, 2022.

Keyamo said; “We read with utter amusement the outburst of the Governor of Edo State; claiming Nigeria will break up if the APC wins the Presidential election. This is coming from a Governor who turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the outrageous and divisive statement made by his presidential candidate in Kaduna a few days ago calling for Northerners not to vote for Yoruba or Igbo candidates.

“This is also coming from a Governor who has so far callously, heartlessly, and undemocratically “broken up” his own State by denying many constituencies of adequate representation in the Edo State House of Assembly by denying the members of their right to take their seats, even though the members were duly elected.”

He claimed that Obaseki’s “abhorrent comment” had unmistakably demonstrated that he must be one of the individuals within his Party who is dragging his candidate and party down a path to electoral disaster.

“This is to our delight. But we worry that if elected; they will inflict the same divisive spirit on our country as a whole.

“It is little wonder then, that his exit from the APC to the PDP was a signal of peace within the APC and the beginning of the unending crises within the PDP,” Keyamo said.

“We call on Governor Obaseki to apologize to the people of Edo State; to the people of the Southern region, and to Nigerians as a whole; for making such an insensitive and reckless statement in the face of PDP’s insensitivity to the principle of power rotation in the country.”
